ᴺQ. !orendë n. “(nuclear) family” (Category: Family)

ᴺQ. !orendë, n. “(nuclear) family” [created by Paul Strack] (Category: Family)
ᴱQ. ettelë “family, kindred (in the wide sense)”
See ᴱQ. soresta for discussion.



Q. o- “together”
^rendë “kinship, kin, kindred, clan”


ᴱQ. soresta n. “family” (Category: Family)

The word ᴱQ. soresta “family” appeared in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s as a combination of ᴱQ. so- “together” and ᴱQ. resta “kin” (QL/85).

Neo-Quenya: For purposes of Neo-Quenya I would adapt this word as ᴺQ. orendë as a combination of later prefix Q. o- “together” and ᴺQ. rendë “kin”. Furthermore, I would use it specifically for a nuclear family (just the parents and children), as opposed to Q. nossë which seems to refer to an extended family or clan.
